Fatigue and sleepiness at work
The fatigue and drowsiness is usually caused by a number of situations, such as driving without a break, overworking before driving, use of medication, stress, time disorientation, difficult roads, etc.
Commonly, truckers are the ones who suffer the most traffic accidents, since they are exposed to fatigue events constantly.
Well, one of the recommendations made to drivers is not to eat heavy meals.
However, we've all heard recommendations about trucker bites which are generally known to give abundant portions.
However, this can be a bad habit because heavy or excessive food should not be consumed before or during driving. Since they can cause human fatigue and drowsiness.
The symptoms of human fatigue are usually loss of concentration, unconscious maneuvers, and slow reaction time, among others.
That's why we recommend that you eat more often but with light refreshmentsIf you are a woman, take a break every two hours, stretch your legs, and walk around for a couple of minutes.
Besides, if you're a trucker you should sleep 8 to 10 hours before an extended day of driving.
Clearly no alcohol or drug useand be careful if you are taking any medications.
If a long route has to be completed, it's most likely that two truckers will go rotating shifts. Especially if you drive at night
On the other hand, technology is a great ally for this type of business.
Well, thanks to anti-sleepiness devices special for professional drivers, several accidents that could have ended in tragedy have been avoided.
One of the most effective is the Fatigue and drowsiness sensor.
This device has a built-in camera that scans in real time the characteristics of the driver, from his face and features, to his behavior even if he is wearing glasses or accessories.
By means of AI the software detects if the driver is fatigued, immediately alerts the driver with an audible alarm.
The fatigue sensor triggers an audible alarm every time the driver looks around and is distracted on the road.
Warns of a maximum speed value. If the driver exceeds this speed a warning alarm is activated.
The device can be connected to a vibrating cushion (optional) which will wake up the driver in case he falls asleep.
Lens and accessory detection:
The software identifies the driver's fatigue features even with glasses or accessories.
False fatigue detection
The drowsiness sensor detects how many times the driver closes his eyes normally or out of tiredness.
Full range detection

In addition, it is possible to digitize your fatigue and sleepiness sensor. For this, you only need to integrate it into a GPS system, so you can see metric reports collected by your live sensor.
